Spotlight On Women In Business In The UK

by Jo Shaer, on March 24, 2014

The March/April 2014 edition of the FSB's The Voice Essex is a spotlight on women in business in the UK.

The front page trumpets that there are around 860,000 SMEs where women are the driving force.

That's 18% of the 4.8m SMEs in the UK.

And another 1.2 million women who are self-employed.

In fact, of the UK's business owners between the ages of 30 and 49, there are more women on top than men.

Certainly my experience as I do the networking circuit in my local area is that there are just as many female business owners as there are men.

And, whilst their male counterparts rely on the old boy network, the woman are up and out there on social media. In the US, the stats say that women dominate all the social networks except LinkedIn. As evidenced by this great infographic:

Women have an amazing determination to get up and get on with it when they see an opportunity arise. Many are developing their own business alongside running a home and raising children.

Without female majority-led businesses, there would be a £130b blackhole in the UK's economy.

Give this month's The Voice a read - it is full of inspiring women, including my friend, Jo Curtis of Women In Business.
